You will require a firewire cable to connect to the Mac. Usually a 4 to 6 pin cable, the newer Macs use a 9 pin version.
iMovie will do the job as will Final Cut.

Edit photographs video


In recent years, laptops have become almost as powerful as desktops. You don't have to remain stationary when doing things such as editing photos or video. You can take your project with you. With the right combination of laptop and video editing program, you can produce professional looking videos anywhere.

Make sure your laptop is capable. Editing video is both a processor and memory heavy process. If you have a slow processor and only the minimum amount of RAM required, your video editing software may run slowly. Also, make sure you have enough hard drive memory to store your clips and renders. Choose video editing software. Most computers today will have a program installed with the operating system, such as iMovie or Windows Movie Maker, but these tend to be basic. If you want something more advanced, consider purchasing it. Consumer grade video software runs as little as $50, while professional options such as Avid Media Composer can cost thousands of dollars. Become familiar with your software. Certain video editing programs have a higher learning curve than others. If you've chosen a professional grade video editing program, such as Final Cut Pro or Avid Media Composer, learning the program may be difficult, so you take a tutorial or read a manual to get acquainted with the various functions of the program. Capture your video. Connect your connection cable or SD card to your laptop. Open your video software and look for an option that says "Capture." The labeling may be different, depending on your software. For example, in Final Cut Pro, the option is "Log and Transfer." Capturing your raw footage imports it to the video editing software so it can be edited. Edit. Once you have captured your video, your clips should appear in your clip library. From there, you should be able to drag them onto the timeline, trim them, slow them down, add effects and manipulate them any way you want.

I have a mv 930 digital video cam corder how to down load videos without mac


You have a couple of options besides finding a friend with a mac, and here they are: You will need to purchase an accessory for each solution that will allow you to connect your camera to your computer and download your videos.
1.You can purchase a firewire port for your computer (I'm assuming you have a desktop pc with an available expansion slot) and simply use a firewire cable to connect your camera to your computer.
This is an example of a firewire PCI card.

This option offers the highest quality results, but can be challenging and sometimes frustrating if you do not have the proper software to capture video.
2. For this second solution, you will use use an analog converter that takes the video-out signal from the AV terminal on your camera and converts it back to digital for your computer to record. This video provides an excellent demo of a product I have used in the past. http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xcpiwl_pinnacle-dazzle-dvd-recorder-plus_tech
This product will come with all the accessories and software you will need to download your videos.
Good Luck!

Getting footage from a cassette onto a mac


Sorry but the only way to transfer the tape is to be able to play it in a compatible camcorder or player. Then use one of the analog to digital converters "available on the internet" to transfer it to a PC.
Best bet is to ask some friends if they have an old camcorder that will be able to play that video cassette for you.
Sidenote: If the cassette is fairly new it might already be recorded in digital format, in which case you only need a compatible camcorder or player and a USB or Firewire cable to import it into your Mac

Hope this helps, don't forget to vote if the answers you seek are helpful.

What kind of cable do I need to upload my video tapes to my computer. I have a Canon Optura 50 mini DV


you need a firewire cable
it is also called IEEE 1394.
however you need a firewire port on your computer as well.
if you don't have a port like that, then you can buy a firewire pci card.
ask at your local electronics shop.

Can you copy your tapes to a computer?


Hello friend,
The Canon ZR40 Mini DV Camcorder has the port "Firewire" so you can copy your tapes to a computer. you will need to check your computer if it has also a firewire socket (All the new laptops have it).
You don't need any drive software, Windows has all the necessary drivers built in. You can use Windows Movie Maker for the capture, but if you want to burn your finished movies onto DVD then look at something like Adobe Premiere Elements 4.0 which is one stop shop application (Capture,edit and burn). you can download a 30 days trial and try it out and see if it's what you want before buying it.
Best Regards,

Video transfer from Canon Optura 10 to Apple iMac


It should work well with Apple iMovie that came with your mac. There is a new version (imovie 09) that is said to be a major improvement over imovie 08 (the version that likely came with your computer). It is part of the iLife suite of multimedia Apple software. Available for $79 from the apple store. Here's a link to the store page. Buy now

Software for Mac application lost


Your Mac video program should have or be able to download the appropriate driver for your camcorder when you want to capture the video from it. I have been using Final Cut Pro with no problems with the Canon Optura XI.
